The ABC is calling on high school-aged students from across greater Melbourne to share a story about their life through the Takeover Melbourne competition.
The annual ABC storytelling competition – in partnership with VicHealth, City of Melbourne, Centre for Multicultural Youth and 31 local councils across Greater Melbourne, including Monash – creates a powerful platform for young Melburnians to be heard and to share their experiences, challenges and passions.
Entries for Takeover Melbourne are now open for high school storytellers to share their stories with ABC audiences around the country.
ABC producers will work with the winners to develop and showcase their stories for broadcast across the ABC. The winners will also receive networking and leadership opportunities to enable their voices to be heard in the corridors of power.
Entries must be a true story about an aspect of the author's life, and can be in any format: text, video or audio.
Entries for the 2021 competition are now open and close Friday 25 June 2021.
Last year, Monash resident Evonne was named one of the winners. Find out more about her story here: Mount Waverley young person named ABC program winner and check out the other winners at the ABC website.
